Veil (Nebula 3) by Oliver + Co. GIVEAWAY




Hey APJ lovers of new,

My mate Oliver Valverde got in touch recently to tell me about his newest release. He’s so sweet and genuinely excited about having something new to offer you all. This week a 30ml Press Bottle of Veil arrived to review and share with you guys. Isn’t that freaking cool?

Before we get to the fragrance though Oliver & Co is now ONLY selling through their website. Oliver has wrested back control of his business from the pressures of selling through retail outlets and is going it alone. That means he can offer better prices (we have already seen them drastically reduce) and FREE SHIPPING to the world if you spend over €160, less if in Europe. Currently the most expensive 50ml bottle he sells is €78! Isn’t that amazing. I really rate his work. It’s challenging and out there but smells wonderful.

Ginger, metallic rose, lemon and a sparkly bunch of something, something, somethings combine to create a fragrance quite different. Spacious, air altering, modern and a little bit weird. I get hints of salty seaweed and later a very modern patchouli just dirtied up a little bit. Veil is the fragrance Buck Rogers would have worn (obviously the space references have sent my mind down this path but now I’ve thought it, it remains unshakeable).

The sheer, unearthly heart and dry down are quite like the smell of an empty can of beetroot after you’ve given it a rinse when you are taking it to the recycle. Sharp, vegetal, pickle sweet and tinny. That’s about the best analogy I can bring you.

Leave a comment below. Four lucky people from anywhere in the world will get a decant.

Have you tried any Oliver & Co?

Saturday Question: What Is Your Latest Full Bottle Purchase?




Hello Fellow Fumies,

At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.

The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
